I know May is half done but I wanted to throw out some #BFC2022 goals for May. I need to read 8 more to make this goal. Currently averaging 34 active zone minutes. I am on hold for #LitsyLove at the moment because I have a truly sucky mail situation currently but I am going to write all of you back! I am moving the first week of July. I cannot wait to have reliable access to mail again. 🔑 📫

I realized I never made a #BFC2022 update for April. I did complete and surpass the Trevor Project 50 mile project. Super proud that my city came out on top! I didn‘t complete my puzzle for my self care goal, but it‘s massive. I had to buy a coffee table just to get started 😂 I won 1/2 DietBet games in April. I read 4/12 books. I surprised myself with my active zone minutes average. My work has walking trails so I have been enjoying those 🌸

My TBR has gotten pretty wombatty lately 🤪 pretty sure I will have this #BookSpin in the bag before my shift starts today. Also hoping to get this #DoubleSpin off my TBR as the poor thing usually ends up in library purgatory before I get to finish it. 😅

I‘ve had this one on my TBR since it was mentioned in Eight Perfect Murders by Peter Swanson, but luckily my memory is crap so I couldn‘t remember the spoiler for the ending. 😂 This was a very witty and enjoyable whodunit. I‘m so glad Milne decided to try out this genre even if it was just the one. I will have to try listening to the audio version that features a full cast one day. I‘d definitely love to revisit this story.

MatchlessMarie @EvieBee I really enjoyed Deathtrap. The movie too! Also Double Indemnity is narrated by Stanley Tucci if you like audio… or Tucci 😜 I think I have 3 left from the list! 3w

EvieBee For sure! Funnily I used to own an old paperback copy in high school of The Drowner. I used to collect old mystery paperbacks. 🤣 Wonder what happened to it. Kindle it is for now! 3w

A little #BFC2022 checkpoint post. I have completed the 50 mile challenge for the Trevor Project. I have won 1/2 Dietbet games so far as well. Also something else I wanted to point out is that I didn‘t even have an active zone minute goal this month but the last 2 months I was trying (and failing lol) to average 33 active zone minutes. Well I‘m currently averaging 43 and the month isn‘t over. It‘s nice to unintentionally reach previous goals 🥹

I posted about this 5 years ago but I finally finished The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants! Take that Ms. Mora. 😝 Might come full circle and do Wuthering Heights next because I‘m pretty sure I skimmed for that project. This was my March #DoubleSpin I may continue the series.

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!! Glad you finally got this one checked off!! I read Wuthering Heights for the first time since high school earlier this year with the #PemberLittens and still thought it was ridiculous 😂 However, now that I'm older, I didn't take it as seriously, so that helped. And I printed off a little family tree so I could X out characters as they kipped over! 😆 1mo

#BFC2022 April goals. I have 2 DietBet games going this month. I also signed up for the 50 mile challenge for The Trevor Project for April. Here‘s my fundraiser link: https://bit.ly/3LCY1gc I haven‘t done a puzzle in a while so I think I‘m going to make that my self care goal. I have a 1000 piece one that I got for Christmas I want to start. Good luck everyone! 👟🧩📚

#BFC2022 I did win my DietBet for March but my other goals were kind of a flop. My outdoor reading goal ended up not panning out because Texas decided to be Texas and my allergies got really bad towards the end of the month. I really love the DB group I found though. They are a fun bunch. Will post April goals on next post.

The poetry in this book is rich and delicious. The story itself is a wonderful tale of friendship. I recently learned the title of the track: The Sea is Deep and the World is Wide by Love Fame Tragedy on their album Wherever I Go, I want to Leave was lifted from this book. It‘s a very short ukulele interlude but I played it on repeat while reading this and it just fits so well. 🌊 🐌 🐋 #MarvellousMarch

MatchlessMarie @DGRachel There are a couple recipes but mostly Cookie Monster witticisms. I love it 😂 Some other good ones are : “when life give me lemons, me ask if anyone got recipe for lemon cookies” and “No matter what they take from me, they no take away my cookie. Because me eat it!” 2mo

February #BFC2022 update. So I didn‘t make my active zone minutes goal. But it‘s ok. I‘m going to swap out that goal for winning a DietBet game I joined with my sister @hollyvoncount It might be a good change of pace. I also met my reading goal of 12 (13 if you count my DNF) and my skin care goal. My self care goal this time seems silly but I want to try to read on my patio 30 minutes a day just for a change of setting and making myself chill.

Here‘s my February #BookSpinBingo wrap up. I think I definitely could have had 2 bingos but I spent a lot of time in February listening to new music. I got to see 2 streamed concerts too: Dashboard Confessional who just released a new album last week and The Wombats who released a new album in January. Love them! My only DNF this month was because I haven‘t read the other books it references. Would like to come back to it at some point.

Finished my January 2022 #DoubleSpin earlier this week and the tagged book today. I went all the way back to February 2020 and found all of my spin picks from when I first started participating in my the #BookSpin reading challenge so I am trying to do like no spin left behind 😅 and hopefully catch up by the end of the year. #20in4 👇

MatchlessMarie I liked both books. An Elderly Lady is basically the embodiment of the “good for her” meme 😈 I look forward to reading the next in the series and see what she gets into next.

I was expecting a bigger twist from Tips For Living but that might just be because of the kind of books I‘ve been reading lately. I still very much enjoyed it though.

That moment when you learn about the concept of multiple discovery after reading a book with science as the backdrop in which you are but one of a multitude of thirsty people who thought of Adam Driver while reading about Adam Carlsen 🥵😅 Does that count as my review?
